Good film featuring a well-to-do black family doing home movie things! Lots of family shots in the beginning, followed by a trip! This was very cool. It was interesting to see what the black people were wearing, because it just totally matches the fashions of the time worn in black cinema.

Subject: Great Rare Footage of Black Americans in 30s-40s
Great footage of Black Americans from the 1930s. It can be so difficult to find this footage of everyday life.
If I'm not mistaken, the older woman at the beginning of the vid is civil rights leader Mary McLeod Bethune.

For reference, here's a pic of her from 1938 (courtesy of Encyclopedia of Arkansas)
